The DSM-5 - Major Reorganization or Incremental Change? Clinical Social Workers Ethical Preparation for the Future of Mental Health Diagnosis (HSP 534)
Clinical social work professionals have a historical connection with psychiatry in the delivery of mental health services, and licensed clinical social workers deliver the majority of mental health services in the United States. The social work profession has a significant stake in the changes in delivery of mental health services that may accompany the DSM-5 release scheduled for May 2013. Dr. Munson participated in the clinical trials for the DSM-5, and he will present what clinical social workers need to know to ethically prepare for transition to the new DSM system. Dr. Munson will review proposed changes in how diagnoses are recorded and proposed changes in the organization and content of specific DSM disorders. There will be a Q & A session. Dr. Munson will clarify misinformation circulated about the DSM-5. Dr. Munson's presentation is based on public information made available by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) about the DSM-5, and Dr. Monson's experience participating in the DSM-5 clinical trials. The actual content of the DSM-5 will not be certain until approved by the APA Board of Directors and publication of the DSM-5. The morning session of this workshop contains content that meets the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners CEU ethics requirement for licensure renewal.
